PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - Town leaders on Palm Beach say damages brought on by Hurricane Sandy will cost $6 million to repair.
According to the Palm Beach Daily News, that's nearly twice as much as what was originally thought.
When town leaders first assessed the damage caused by Sandy, initial estimates showed there was about $3.5 million.
Winds and waves brought on by Sandy caused severe erosion all along the coast of Palm Beach, including the dunes at Phipps Ocean Park. The storm also caused property damage at The Breakers. Town managers say the storm damaged the sea wall at the Beach Club, and destroyed another sea wall in front of a home off Ocean Lane, the Palm Beach Daily News reports.
Town leaders are waiting to see of they'll get federal aid before making any repairs.
FEMA must make a federal disaster declaration before granting aid money.
The island got help from FEMA following the 2004 and 2005 storm seasons when several storms ripped through the state.
The town's sand transfer plant was also damaged by Sandy. Those repairs were not included in the $6 million price tag.
Town managers haven't indicated when, or if, they expect to get FEMA's approval.
